When we pray, we mostly want God to change our circumstances: change this, change that, change them, change me. But real prayer will help you discover that God is not only bigger than your circumstances, he’s better than your circumstances.
When Christians pray, they pray to a personal God through a personal Saviour. Sometimes when you pray, you think you’re looking for answers. In the Lord’s prayer, Jesus shows us that what we’re really looking for is not an answer, but something very different.
Often when we go to God in prayer, we show up with a list of all the things we’d like God to do. Not only does Jesus show us how to handle that list, he shows us another couple of other lists we often neglect.
